Abdominal Pain Answer A44402
Welcome to e health forum.

The description of your left sided lower chest or abdominal pain can be due to number of causes including gastric reflux, Peptic ulcer disease, infection or inflammatory conditions including - complications associated with chronic pancreatitis (which is mentioned in your history). Recurrence of obstruction within the biliary ducts (common bile duct) or inflammatory damage of the Common bile duct junction could also be a cause.

Additional information, including a complete medical history, a physical examination and possibly a few blood tests and Imaging studies may be necessary to provide a specific diagnosis and possible treatment measures.

You might consult with your treating doctor, and seek appropriate medical care.

I hope this helps.
